I'll give u a rough breakdown of the rough cab prices in Japan:Originally Posted by dawgbyte77
- A taxi ride from Narita Airport in Chiba to Shinjuku in Central Tokyo costs approximately SGD$400 (incl. highway tolls)
- Flagdown taxi rate is like 500Yen or SGD$8 for the first 2km
- For every subsequent jump, it would be 100Yen or apprx SGD$1.40
- A 20min taxi ride stopping at every single traffic light would set u back approximately 3000Yen or SGD$50 1 way.
That's how prices are. But a small consolation is that they made it up in service, safety and shockingly good service. And they wun go KNNBCCB at the driver in front and proceed to overtake aggressively cut the driver in front and give 'em The Bird.
Or maybe boast tales from their 'glory days' and proceed to drive with hands off the wheel.
Or maybe upon learning u have a license, give u a theory lesson on extreme evasive driving.
Perhaps curse and berate the govt for every screwups in their own life, from bad debts, overdue bills to their children not filial to them and wife leaving them.
Maybe u guys would like a cabby who punctuates his sentence with a CB or a KNN?
Juz some of the cabbies I'd encountered.
